Sims 3, lag and freezes

Post by SageSwag on Fri 27 Apr 2012, 22:01

Ok i have sims 3 installed and updated with games4theworld sims 3fix. I also have most expansions installed. When i load a new world or saved game it loads for like 10 minutes and when i try to create a char, it lags, i click on clothing section and it freezes for a while than loads, yet the frame rate stays the same above 150. In game when i scroll around it lags and freezes too. Very hard and unenjoyable to play like that, can you guys tell me what could it be? I also dont have any mods installed just the game and like 8 expansions.


Mod edit: Topic moved to the right section.

Tnx for reply, but non of those tips really helped me, i have no mods/cc installed just the game and about 8 expansions, also the game lags even when i make a char it freezes sometimes, but when i look at FPS it stays the same it doesnt drop at all.

I don't even need to run the test because I know that my computer can handle Sims, I play crysis and bf3 with no lag. But yeah It lags in all worlds and loads really slow it also freezes once in a while.

Hello,

Unfortunately The Sims is known for being buggy.
You can try clearing the caches, the simplest way is to get the The Sims 3 folder from My Document\Electronic Arts and dragging&dropping it to your desktop. The game generates a new folder, after which you can copy your saves back.
